BLOOMFIELD, NJ – These days residents in the Township of Bloomfield are in for a much smoother ride when they drive, thanks to the Township’s recently completed “Pothole Week”. The Bloomfield Department of Public Works reports it utilized over ten tons of asphalt to fill 665 potholes throughout the north and south end. The Pothole Week initiative is a main component of Bloomfield’s new program “Clean & Strong Bloomfield”.
“Dilapidated streets pose a significant safety hazard for all roadway users, and can cause severe and costly damage to vehicles,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “Completely resurfacing these streets will provide residents and business owners with peace of mind for years to come.”
“Clean & Strong Bloomfield” is a new initiative that encourages community engagement by soliciting feedback from residents as well as town employees about quality of life issues, suspected criminal activity, infrastructure or roadway issues, or any situation that detracts from a safe and harmonious community environment.
